Douglas-County-bus-600x450A school dis­trict in Col­orado is com­ing under the wrath of the com­mu­ni­ty for telling school girls that they may have to sub­mit to sharia-com­pli­ant rules regard­ing cov­er­ing their heads and ankles on a field trip to a Mus­lim mosque.

Accord­ing to WND, Dou­glas Coun­ty School Dis­trict con­firmed that such Islam­ic law will be enforced on the trip.

Rocky Heights Mid­dle School (RHMS) Prin­ci­pal Mike Loitz appeared on Jan­u­ary 6, 2015 on KNUS 710 radio and was inter­viewed about the trip.

Peter Boyles of KNUS report­ed on the rules the school sys­tem issued to stu­dents in order to noti­fy par­ents, which were as follows:

The world reli­gions field trip is next Tues­day, Jan­u­ary 13. We will be vis­it­ing the Den­ver Mosque, the Assump­tion Greek Ortho­dox Cathe­dral, and the Rodef-Shalom Syn­a­gogue. We will then eat lunch at Park Mead­ows Food Court. Stu­dents must either bring a sack lunch or mon­ey to pur­chase lunch at the food court.

THERE IS A DRESS CODE FOR THIS TRIP: All stu­dents must wear appro­pri­ate long pants. Ankles must be cov­ered. Girls must bring wide scarves or hood­ed sweat­shirts for the mosque.

Accord­ing to Boyles, “Pub­lic schools are for­bid­den from hold­ing girls to dif­fer­ent stan­dards than boys,” Boyles notes. “They’re hold­ing these girls to a dif­fer­ent stan­dard – it’s a reli­gious reason.”

Islam dic­tates many, I believe – per­son­al belief – repres­sive prac­tices against women and Islam­o­pho­bia will trump women’s rights,” Boyles said. “Ani­mal rights every time, and the envi­ron­ment. That’s their belief – that’s won­der­ful. But don’t apply it to pub­lic school kids.”

He also went on to talk about the dif­fer­ence of vis­it­ing a place of wor­ship on one’s own ini­tia­tive and com­ply with the rules ver­sus a school requir­ing stu­dents to comply.

After a firestorm had erupt­ed over forc­ing girls to sub­mit to sharia, the school thought it best to pro­vide a state­ment of clarification.

For the past ten years, RHMS sev­enth-grade stu­dents take a social stud­ies course that is par­tial­ly focused on world reli­gion,” the state­ment reads. “In the Dou­glas Coun­ty School Dis­trict (DCSD), we pro­vide authen­tic learn­ing expe­ri­ences to all stu­dents. We teach stu­dents how to think, not what to think.”

So, if the school dis­trict is try­ing to teach stu­dents how to think and not what to think, why is there an impos­ing of sharia on these girls?

The social stud­ies course includes a vol­un­tary field trip to a Greek Ortho­dox Church, a Jew­ish Tem­ple, and a Mosque. As with any field trip, our stu­dents and fam­i­lies are offered the choice to par­tic­i­pate in the field trip – it is not manda­to­ry,” the state­ment con­tin­ued. “If the deci­sion is made to not par­tic­i­pate in a field trip, alter­na­tive edu­ca­tion­al oppor­tu­ni­ties are pro­vid­ed. This is true for any DCSD field trip, includ­ing the RHMS world reli­gion field trip. Stu­dents who choose to attend the RHMS world reli­gion field trip are expect­ed to respect the dress code of the host facil­i­ty, but again, they may choose not to par­tic­i­pate. Infor­ma­tion shared with RHMS par­ents stat­ed: “All stu­dents must wear appro­pri­ate long pants. Ankles must be cov­ered. Girls must bring wide scarves or hood­ed sweat­shirts for the mosque.”

Addi­tion­al­ly, the school said that the course is not part of Com­mon Core and stat­ed that Com­mon Core “does not include social studies.”

It is true that the trip is vol­un­tary and not manda­to­ry. How­ev­er, Islam has been mak­ing advances into America’s pub­lic schools and the ide­ol­o­gy of Islam is poi­son­ing the minds of our young peo­ple. Why is it that Amer­i­cans must make way for Islam, but it will not make way for America?

Here’s just a sam­pling of sto­ries over the past year where Islam is mak­ing inroads in the pub­lic schools of America:

Addi­tion­al­ly, des­ig­nat­ed ter­ror­ist group Hamas-CAIR forced obser­vance of Islam­ic Hol­i­days in Mary­land schools in 2013. Stu­dents in Kansas were met with the five pil­lars of Islam on their first day of class in 2013. In the same year, Hamas-CAIR blast­ed the hand­ing out of per­mis­sion slips for Bible study class­es, which took place off cam­pus while at the same time putting pres­sure on Dear­born Pub­lic Schools to imple­ment a pol­i­cy which ful­ly accom­mo­dates stu­dent-led Islam­ic prayer in all the schools, as well as unex­cused absences for stu­dents who leave ear­ly on Fri­days for Jumu’ah prayers.

Pamela Geller wrote con­cern­ing this issue, “The sub­ju­ga­tion and oppres­sion of women are enshrined under the sharia. Young school girls should not be forced to “respect” a dress code that rep­re­sents hon­or vio­lence, female gen­i­tal muti­la­tion, forced mar­riage, child mar­riage, et al…. The islamiza­tion of our pub­lic schools is well-doc­u­ment­ed in my book Stop the Islamiza­tion of Amer­i­ca: A Prac­ti­cal Guide to the Resis­tance.”

On Sun­day, Pamela Geller high­light­ed the fact that Sele­na Gomez and her friends vis­it­ed a mosque in Abu Dhabi and enjoyed them­selves, laugh­ing and even tak­ing pic­tures. They all had on Islam­ic garb and in one of the pic­tures, she is seen lift­ing her bur­ka and show­ing a bare foot and ankle. For this she was labeled as “dis­re­spect­ful” because she vio­lat­ed the rules that for­bid, “dis­plays of inter­per­son­al affection…exposing skin and open­ly laughing.”

As I often encour­age par­ents, take your chil­dren out of the pub­lic indoc­tri­na­tion cen­ters where they won’t even be exposed to this nonsense.Teach them the law of God in your own home and equip them to be those that hon­or the Lord. You can even begin your home­school jour­ney at no cost if you have chil­dren K‑5. If you want to stop the isla­maza­tion of America’s chil­dren, start in your own home.Screen-Shot-2015-01-06-at-10.30.01-AM
